Who Put the Nazi in Arizona?

Huffington Post:
J.T. Ready has publicly campaigned for Senator Pearce
State Senator Russell Pearce (R-Arizona), author sponsor of SB1070.

Jason "J.T." Ready (Soutern Poverty Law Center):
The past president of the Mesa Community College Republican Club and current Maricopa County Republican precinct committeeman, Ready is deeply involved in mainstream conservative politics. He's also an outright neo-Nazi. Ready spoke at a rally put on by the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement in Omaha, Neb., last September (where he was billed as an "Arizona Republican activist") and appeared at the neo-Nazi National Vanguard's "Winterfest" gathering in Phoenix last December. He regularly posts to white nationalist online forums, including NewSaxon, where last December he offered this charming observation on the root causes of illegal immigration: "The truth is that negroids screw monkeys and rape babies in afreaka [sic]. Then stupid white man who licks kosher jew rear lets negroids in. … Stop Negroid immigration and integration now!!! Nature will take care of the rest."

Today's BeckBoard Wingnut 101 lesson: You can't spell Arizona without the nazi.

BeckBoard extra credit assignment: connect the dots...

= Sen. Russell Pearce = author sponsor of SB1070 (See: Kris Kobach, the author of the Arizona law)

= Neo-Nazi William Pierce = author of The Turner Diaries (and publisher of National Vanguard Books).

If you see the words... You see these -- these are code words. - You see those words,... Warning. Warning. Many... have been infiltrated with this line of thinking that is absolutely against the freedoms that our Founding Fathers designed. And you can find them, you can find them. And they're not hard to find. Look for them... because there are hidden messages that are there. And they're not hidden. I mean, it's not a conspiracy. It's all out in the open. ~ Mr. Beck, Dec., 2009.

The Ron Paul kind of contributors and supporters.

Don't like Big-'ol Gubmint, them taxes, Il-lee-gall imgrints, non-like-minded white folks, anyone less "racially pure", and so on.

Add Right to Lifers, NRA members, Birthers, Prebellum Southern Fan Clubs, and the generally ignorant folk who go all Pavlovs dog at the sight of the flag and a red power tie. You got yourself a coalition government.

Not so worried about the rise and fall of a white majority as I am about the dumbing down of the vast majority of adults between perhaps the ages of 30-80.

Too much Wheel of Fortune or Price is Right or Regis, Oprah, -
or the birth of Fox gNews as the catalyst? Cause we sure are chock full of shitheads in this country about now.

Actually, Nazis have been in Arizona for a long time.

Oh noz!!!! But the article is probably wrong about the directional use... and the swastika on the sign is probably correct afterall. The Navajo and Hopi used the swastika symbol before the nazis adopted it (facing the same way as the nazi version). Check this photo out from 1909:
basketball team photo 1909 (probably Hopi or Navajo)

Plus, the US Army's 45th Infantry Division representing Arizona, OK, NM, and CO, adopted it in 1920 as their insignia, and as a way of honoring the southwestern native american tribes of those states. Can see that here:

A lot of people used the swastika facing both ways long before the nazis came along and ruined the brand.

Like the Tampa Bay Bucs/Raiders ruined the Jolly Roger.

Best description of Al Davis I've heard was "looks like the Evil Emperor from Star Wars after a 3-day booze & coke bender".

The old Pittsburgh Pirates logo (the one that looks like Rock Hudson at a Halloween tea dance) wasn't doing the genre any favors either.
